Trust Your Strength is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to creating awareness of the mental support needed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and making a difference for families in need. Our vision is to encourage and strengthen parents of Miracles born prematurely and of medically fragile children. We will provide self-care packages, financial assistance, and support, while working to strengthen parents through self-care events.
Studies have suggested an estimate of 70 percent of parents whose babies spend time in the NICU may grapple with symptoms of depression, yet there are not good screening measures in place to help them.
It is important to remind parents that self-care is important. Through our organization, we will provide the tools and support needed to better assist parents in building relationships that will allow them to lean on each other and acknowledge them for a job well done.
We provide catered lunches and dinners to local Atlanta hospitals, provide transportation assistance and acknowledge parents for having strength, courage, and sacrifice during some of their most difficult times. We also host a Trust Your Strength annual fundraiser to support our mission.
